I have a HD Road King 2001, Purchased a 2002 K1200LT, In one word,,,,Its the best bike I ever had, its so different, it doesn’t have the HD bad boy look, it doesn’t come with the HD glitter clothing style, ( style before function ) NO Glitter infrastructure, No Blind mass following. But the k1200lt is in my opinion the best machine for my style of riding...enjoyable riding! Fun Riding! Pleasurable riding!lippol said:I'm thinking of trading my HD Electra Glide for a K1200 LT. Has anyone else done this and what are your thoughts? Also does anyone have input on the best BMW dealer in the Phoenix area?
I completely agree. SOMEday...I'll have my LT, a sport-tourer or two, some totally naked & radical street hooligan, a full-blown race replica, an old 70s naked GoldWing, and an old Harley Fat Boy...Chrome & White w/ white ghost flames. And horns so loud that it'll blow the clothes . . . . er . . . . never mind. (see 'The Italian Job' for that reference.)CharlieVT said:Nothing wrong with sitting back in western riding style, feet out in front, with the bike going Thud, Thud, Thud under you. I'd really like to have a HD someday. It is on my list. But first...
I went from a 2000 Ultra Classic stage II 95" in August 2002. No regrets at all in fact good riddens, No Comparison. The only Harley's I have are a 36 VLH and 53 FL, both alot of fun.

That's IT! You NAILED it!The LT is very top heavy compared to the Ultra but I am able to do a pretty tight u-turn with both feet on the pegs. The LT as NO low rpm torque this was the most difficult thing to adjust to but the '05 LT has 116hp and plenty of torque in the power band. The LT will cruise all day at 80+ and not even break a sweat and at the end of the day you want to just keep riding.
THAT is usually the easy part: Go for a test ride with her on board. That'll do it. At least in 99% of all cases.lippol said:The #1 obstacle right now is building my wife's confidence level since she feels so comfortable on the Electra Glide.
